Update: Delux Cafe in Boston's South End Has Closed; Will Reopen in February

[Ed note: This article was updated on January 26 to reflect the fact that the restaurant has been sold and will be reopening.]

An eclectic restaurant and bar in the South End of Boston has closed its doors, though it now looks like the place will reopen.

A note from Patrick M. of the Server Not Servant site indicates that Delux Cafe on Chandler Street has shuttered, with a Twitter post from @DigBoston (via Anna Norton on Facebook) confirming this--a sign out front saying "Delux Cafe -- RIP" is shown on Dig's page. [Update: A response to DigBoston by the restaurant says that it is "Gone, but not for long. Sold to a long time employee and will reopen in February." (Thanks to The Boston Globe for bringing this to our attention.)]

Delux Cafe, which first opened in 1993, featured mostly classic American fare, pub grub, and comfort food, with such dishes as Cubanos, BBQ ribs, grilled cheese sandwiches, tacos, quesadillas, ravioli, and roasted half chicken offered.

The address for the Delux Cafe is 100 Chandler Street, Boston, MA, 02116.

  1. Last I heard talking to the girls that worked there was that one of them and her husband (the head chef) bought it and have been going thru the process of getting everything ready for the permits and to have contractors come in and do some much needed renovation. Original plan is for it to be back within a month given however long the updates take.

  2. I will miss this place tremendously.
    It's been almost eighteen odd years and a gender change since I moved to Boston from elsewhere, and this establishment has been stalwart. A Miller High Life with a lime and menu were proffered as soon as I set myself down at the bar. RIP, indeed.
